Alice in Wonderland

Bonkers To Be Late by RosieLilyIce93 (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     Alice is finally back from China after three years. Now she has to make the decision to either stay in London with her family and perhaps be unhappy for the rest of her life, OR to honor her promise and return to her Wonderland and a chance at happiness. Her decision will have consequences for both worlds though.
     Tarrant released a deep breath and moved towards the door. Locking it, he turned and leaned against it. Alice remained where he had left her, eyeing him cautiously. Tarrant could only stare at her. The sunshine hit her in just a way that it appeared as if a crown of light shone upon her hair. Her dark eyes took on a golden glow and the soft flush in her cheeks made her look like one of the fae folk his mother had once told him stories about. Just like those mystical folk, his Alice had been surprising him and beguiling him since she was a wee lass. She was still a lass at heart, age made no difference. She was still determined to take things at a flying leap. Only this time he worried. She had leapt without looking first, taking him with her. And this time he was afraid there wouldn't be a prickle bush to land in but a very long, dark fall of the steepest of cliffs. "Alice luv, do you realize what you have done?"

I Love My Love by justadram (FanFiction.Net Profile)
     "Little maid, pretty maid, whither goest thou?" Alice has forgotten her friends in Underland, until one day she follows the figures she sees in the looking glass.
     "This is impossible," Hatter said, awestruck. "Sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast," Alice whispered. He quirked a brow at her. "An excellent practice, but just at the moment, you should focus on the kissing."

One Promise Kept: Book 1 by Manniness (LiveJournal)
     Alice makes a promise that is kept, but at a great cost. Surviving the consequences should have taught her to be more careful with future promises, but how can she refuse the queen her Champion? Or Tarrant Hightopp his Alice?
     Alice grasps Tarrant's left hand in hers and Mirana thinks she hears Alice whisper, "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" But no, Alice couldn't have said that, Mirana decides, turning away with a shake of her head. There's no reason at all for Tarrant's face to light up or his eyes to sparkle with delight or his lips to stretch into a wide grin at such a very odd phrase. Why, the man looks as if Alice has just professed her undying love.

One Promise Kept: Book 2 by Manniness (LiveJournal)
     This is a direct continuation of Book 1. Queen Mirana and her Champion expect it to be a short trip abroad. And, in all fairness, it is. Finding their way home to Mamoreal, however, is the hard part.
     Tarrant's eyelashes flicker. Calm. Yes, he's calm because Alice is still alive. Still alive and uninjured. But, no, that's not true. Her soul is crying out, dying a heartbeat at a time. His Alice is not safe. She is not uninjured. She is nearing the end of her considerable strength and she needs him and here he sits not ten bloody minutes AWAY AND HE CANNOT EVEN—!

One Promise Kept: Book 3 by Manniness (LiveJournal)
     Three months pregnant, Alice is called upon to be the Champion for all of Underland. However, this time, Alice won't be meeting this challenge alone.
     He doesn't glance at the clock, for as long as the window beside him is dark, there's still Time to finish, Time yet to complete and then bestow the honor upon his wife that is hers by right, Time yet to fulfill his duty to her as the Laird of Iplam, Time yet to marvel that he is even Here, Now, doing This at all.

One Promise Kept: Book 4 by Manniness (LiveJournal)
     Times have changed and the next generation is coming into their own. Alice and Tarrant step aside and take up their responsibilities in Iplam. But the past, despite being in the past, is a shadow one can never truly escape.
     “I need you,” she pleads, her heart aching with his as his irises shift in color yet again; this time into the color of pure misery: black. She cannot bear the sight of it so she closes her eyes, but that only directs her attention to the emotions pouring out over her heart, drenching her in the flames of his desolation. But she forces herself to say the words. This is the only way. The best way. And he must Trust her! “Tarrant, I need you to help me die.”

One Promise Kept: Book 5 by Manniness (LiveJournal)
     The citizens of Underland enjoy peace again, but when the consequences of the brief rebellion result in Tarrant's death, Alice swears to bring him back to her. Whatever it takes.
     “Raven,” he murmurs, wrapping his long, warm arms around her. “Where else would I be, were I given the merest possibility of choosing, than here? With you? In our home?” His words echo through her memory and into the past, into a night when she had sworn not to let her own madness hurt him again, when she had offered to go and leave him in peace... and when he had promptly welcomed her home.
